'm, like, this is really, really is this going to happen here? more bad weather? >> you know, without sandy, this storm that we're going to talk about is not a storm. it's not a big deal. but you have millions of people without power, you have millions of people with half of a roof off, the windows shattered, trying to survive, live in their let's head outside, and all of a sudden you get wind and rain -- not a hurricane, but 30 miles per hour. you get wind and rain and maybe even into upstate and snow. here's what's set up. still very cold in the northeast right now. the jet stream goes up and then down. when the jet stream goes down, that allows all the cold air to spill in from the north. when the jet stream goes up like that, that allows sometimes a low pressure system to come over and then back down and go up as a coastal low. it's up there long enough. i know they have natural gas there, but you can't turn on your furnace if you don't have feign to blow that around. the furnace simply will not turn on. this is a european model. we use this model really extentively especially with sand

,000 homes or businesses in new york remain without power. it's now two weeks after sandy came ashore. yesterday the head of the long island power authority announced his resignation effective at the end of the year. he says it has nothing to do with the harsh criticism his utility company has received following hurricane sandy. of course, not. governor andrew cuomo is putting together a commission to investigate how utility companies in new york responded to the storm. meanwhile, a familiar group is taking a new lead helping victims of hurricane sandy. remember the occupy wall street movement? it turns out they never really went away as nbc's katy tur explains. >> reporter: there are no official badges. all they have for identification is a first name crippled on tom masking tape. these volunteers may not have a legal charity status, but that's not stopping them. >> they desperately need our help. they lost everything. >> tax the rich. >> reporter: remember the occupy wall street movement famous for taking over zuccotti park and taking up the term 1%. now they have occupy sandy. occu
on the ad truthfulness or lack thereof. let me move you to hurricane sandy and something that karl rove, who as you know, was the architect of the bush campaign from the deputy white house chief of staff for george w. bush, and he said the washington post, "if you hadn't had the storm, there would have been more of a chance for the romney campaign to talk about the deficit, the debt, the economy. there was a stutter in the campaign. when you have attention drawn away to somewhere else, to something else, it is not to his -- meaning governor romney's -- advantage." do you think that hurricane sandy or superstorm sandy and the president's handling of it stopped mitt romney's momentum and helped the president? >> you know, i don't know. i can't judge that. i have been here in ohio watching on tv some of the scenes, including on your network yesterday of people who are really frustrated, which is, you know, typical of the natural disaster like this. our hearts go out to those folks, but it's tough for government to be able to respond. i don't know how it plays honestly. i know that right now if
. and then hurricane sandy hit. on tuesday romney will try to unseat an incumbent president, he's trying to knock a party out of power after just one term. while the president is targeting each part of his coalition with a handful of small arguments, romney is counting on winning the large one. >> he made a lot of promises, but those promises he couldn't keep. and the difference between us, he made promises he couldn't keep, i'm making promises i have kept and i will keep them for the american people. >> so where does that leave us? the two campaigns believe passionately in two different realities. the president obama campaign believes the countries demographics have changed the etor roert in your favor. the romney campaign believes you have the momentum to swing over. it's possible we are headed for a 50/50 split. it all comes down to nine states or seven or five? whatever the result. polarization is hardening. the house has changed hands three times in the last two decades. two of those times have been in the last six years. red states are getting redder and blue states are getting bluer. the e

to blame sandy and chris christie for mitt romney's loss. he has to reaffirm the republican base that he's with them. >> ari, when you look at the president's approval numbers on the storm, i believe it's 67% of the public according to our nbc news numbers, 67% approve, 16% disapprove. 17% not sure. it's not something that the republicans want, certainly sandy has done a good job of not only making the case are for government but showing that the president is capable of working across the aisle? >> yeah. i don't think that people really in ohio, for example, are going to change their mind over the last minute over this leadership, good as it is. but i do think to your point that what we see here is a freezing of the political facts that existed a week ago where mitt romney was gaining a little but no way in the lead. the new poll number out tonight still show this slight but real edge for the president. and not a big edge. but, again, mitt romney lost a week of politicking here and that is the biggest problem. if the republicans now as a prebuttal or on tuesday after they lose, try to pu
voters and young voters. and also a pollster, he felt that sandies, the storm, that occurred the week before the election made a difference. one, he said it allowed the president to look presidential. you know, he was sort of doing presidential duties and handling the storm. the second thing was that it took up a lot of the awaves. newhouse said the public was rightly focused on the storm but it didn't allow the romney campaign to prosecute their message. the third thing he said was president obama was a able to make use of his relationship with governor chris christie and behave in an elevated bipartisan way that governor romney had been trying to do. >> was there any whiff of bitterness with regard to the reference it chris christie? >> no. on the call he mentioned it was a statement of fact. >> and what about responses from any of the big donors on the call? were there any complaints? were there any reactions from them at the notion that mitt romney used all their money in what was a losing effort? >> the donors on this call were not able to ask questions. i've heard gripes from do
up my mind, so i'm telling you. >> according to a new quinnipiac poll, less than a month after sandy hit new jersey, voters there have given him a 72% approval rating. the highest recorded by quinnipiac for a new jersey governor. ever. 95% of new jersey voters gave christie an excellent or good rating for his response to hurricane sandy. and despite criticism from some national republican leaders, 84% approved of christie's praise of president obama's response to the storm, including 69% of republicans. newark's democratic mayor, cory booker, told the new jersey star ledger today, quote, i'm giving a run consideration. critical to my decision is not the difficulties of the politics or positioning in polls, but choosing the position from which i can make the best contributions to the city and state i love. meanwhile, a new rutgers eagleton poll finds governor christie leading mayor booker in a hypothetical race, 53 to 34%. joining me now, david corn and msnbc political analyst, jonathan allen, senior washington correspondent for politico. david corn, let's talk about cory booker for a

-- following his hands on response to hurricane sandy. before the storm, 56% of registered voters in the garden state approved of the job he was doing after sandy, they were surveyed again giving the governor -- >> look at these numbers. >> 77%. >> willie, you're a new jersey guy. new jersey native. i'm sure you can't remember a governor having a 77% approval rating, a republican governor in a blue state having a 77%. 67% of democrats in new jersey give chris christie a positive rating. i just -- he's defying gravity politically. it's remarkable. >> by historical new jersey standards in these polls, that 56% number was outrageous to begin with. a republican governor in the state of new jersey gets 52%. yes, it's the storm, but it's also what we saw on the show, i think it was two weeks ago, him and randy weingarten sitting down. there are people who don't like his style, don't like the way he does things, but they recognize he's working with the other side, a thing we don't see much in washington to get things done for the people. yes, it's the storm, but also the body of what he's done -- >> m

from superstorm sandy. we've got a little bit of snow, lake-effect snow into the eastern great lakes. some of the snowfall totals could be 6 to 12 inches. but essentially north of interstate 90 line from watertown to syracuse, back over a little bit further towards the east. however for new york city, staten island, and for atlantic city, places like boston, generally speaking, we're starting out as rain, and maybe a rain/snow mix. and then we're looking at it changing over to all rain. well, the frontal system is making its way towards the eastern seaboard, computer models probably overdoing the snowfall just a little bit. i think if anything, a half inch or an inch. but we're not looking at big, sick amounts. however quite a different story back across texas into louisiana and arkansas, with a chance for some hail. strong winds. and possibility of some tornadoes going into the afternoon. this is going to be an afternoon event, and the rest is just slight across this region. in new york, those readings will be in the 40s today. but for new york city, on tuesday, only into the 30s. a
